Established in 2000 by Welsh immigrants Des and Jan Hawkins, Wentwood Grange has quickly transitioned from a boutique farm to a major player in the New Zealand bloodstock industry. 

Named after the Wentwood forest that their dairy farm in Wales, prior to their move to New Zealand, looked over Wentwood-bred horses carry the distinctive brand of the Prince of Wales feathers. 

Wentwood Grange is now in the hands of their sons Sean, Dean and Leigh – although Des and Jan continue to play key roles in the day-to-day running of the farm.

Family values and a hands-on approach are trademarks of this growing business, owned and operated by the Hawkins Family and located just 5kms out of Cambridge in the extremely fertile Waikato region of New Zealand. 

Home to a desirable broodmare band of over 120 quality thoroughbreds, Wentwood Grange is focused on breeding and preparing quality horses for trade across Australasia.
